I need a little more Apache help

Tom HTom H Posts: 6Member
I am trying to run Apache Web server locally on my Linux box. It has no connection to the outside world.

As it stands now the web server is installed and working. If I go to http://localhost/ I get the web page confirming that Apache is working. If I attempt to acces any other location on the machine such as http://localhost/home/username/public_html I simply get a URL not found message. I have looked through the httpd.conf file and can't seem to find anything that differs from the information I have gotten out of some books and the web. I can look at anything I want browsing the machine with the browser (file: /home/username/public_html) but this simply displays the contents of whatever file happens to be there. I need to access locations on my machine through the web server. Any suggestions????

Thanks for your time,
Tom H
